[Bro] script working from cmd line but not from local.bro

susTx.bro is the simplified version of the script that works.

trackOutTx.bro is the one that doesn't.

Another thing I'm seeing is I cannot find these notices in Elsa once the notice.log has been rotated by SO.  I'm sure I'm just not understanding something as I'm quite new to SO, Bro, and Elsa.  Is there something else I have to do to ensure these notices show up in the Elsa archive?  Is there a delay of a several hours before they show up in Elsa?

Thank you,

If the total bytes when the connection is removed from memory is over X bytes then raise a Bro notice.  I have a global variable structure defined to keep track of internal hosts that have uploaded more than X bytes in a connection.

Please post the script so we can review it.
